This book is a series of real life short stories of the author’s life experiences in the high peaks region of the New York state Adirondacks. Although Steve Rother is, and has been a practicing attorney in New Jersey, he has had deep roots in the Adirondacks from early childhood through his 80th year of life. Those experiences began in 1948, long before the Adirondacks became easily accessible by interstate highways. The experiences became lifelong when his immigrant father, who earlier traveled from New York City to the high peaks by hitch hiking, purchased a camp. These short stories relate how his experiences in the Adirondacks, under the influence of his parents and Adirondack natives, have influenced his identity. {00922945.2}
